The holidays were fun yet stressful. You had spent time with those you cared about and may have gotten into a spat or two, and now that the holidays have ended. A new year has begun, Happy New Year 2024, and you are in a space where the post-holiday blues have not hit you, and that makes it the ideal time to think about goals you want to set for yourself for this year. Are you ready to set some attainable New Year’s resolutions?

The good news is that Mercury just got out of retrograde, which will help give you a clearer mind. Therefore, you can set goals that you can keep. What are the best New Year’s resolutions that you should choose according to your zodiac sign?

Aries – Meditate More

Aries, you are energetic, passionate, impatient, and high-strung. You may not be the one to hold a grudge, but you can lose your temper quickly, even though it passes through you just as fast as it comes on. You may not even remember how many times you may have lost your cool in the previous year.

You are who you are, but one resolution that you can make and work on sticking to is to meditate more. Meditate daily. Meditation will calm your mind, and you may get to a point where you can become less irritated if something or someone rubs you the wrong way. Meditation has many physical, mental, and spiritual benefits, as it is very good for your mind and body.

Taurus – Go Through Your Items In Your Storage Areas

Taurus, you are all about your possessions given that you are a Venus-ruled earth sign, and you may have done plenty of shopping for clothing, shoes, purses, and other items that you fell in love with and then put into your closet or storage only to forget about them.

The New Year’s resolution you should make would be to go through your closet or other items in storage and decide what you want to keep and what you want to donate or junk. This will be a difficult task for you because you struggle to let go of anything regardless of whether or not you have any emotional attachment to it. Still, you will want to free up space and give something usable that you don’t need to those who are less fortunate.

Gemini – Write A Book

Gemini, you are versatile, sociable, and a great communicator. You have a lot on your mind to the point that you don’t always know how to express what is on your mind. Why not think about writing a book if you have not done so already?

You are not short on ideas, as you can write a novel or a book about something you know because there are others out there who will be interested in reading what you write. You also know how to pitch your work as an author well, and you could make excellent podcast guests. You may even want to start a podcast, too, if that is what you prefer, or write a book and start a podcast.

Cancer – Begin Journaling

Cancer, you are extremely nurturing, and you are also highly emotional to the point that you do not know how to handle your emotions. That is why journaling is something you should do, and if this is not something you are doing already, then make journaling a New Year’s resolution that you can stick to because when you write down your emotions, you can process them and understand them better.

Therefore, you can handle and control your emotions better after processing them to understand them. It is the best gift you can give to yourself. You can buy a fancy journal on Etsy or Amazon, or you can buy a notebook journal. It does not matter what kind of journal you get as long as you begin to use it.

Leo – Show Appreciation To Those Who Care About You

Leo, you want to be in the spotlight as you crave having others notice you for your actions. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be recognized for the good you do for others, and there is nothing wrong with wanting to be acknowledged for your work.

However, you tend to forget about those who love and care about you and how much they give you what you need, which is recognition and acknowledgment. The best New Year’s resolution you can make is to show appreciation and gratitude towards those in your life who give you what you need. Why not buy them a coffee or give them a call to show your appreciation? If you do that, they will appreciate you even more!

Virgo – Pat Yourself On The Back For Your Achievements

Virgo, you know that you can be your own worst critic, as you have a perfectionist nature, which is why you are too hard on yourself. You have a very analytical nature, and you are pretty organized. You don’t acknowledge your achievements, and that needs to change.

Therefore, the best New Year’s resolution you should make and stick to is to pat yourself on the back for all of your previous achievements, and you can look at the accomplishments you made as a child as well. Find a day to set aside time so you can think back to all of your accomplishments, and you will see that even though you are not perfect, you are pretty amazing. You will also want to get used to realizing there is no such thing as perfection and keep striving for excellence.

Libra – Create More Alone Time

Libra, you are incredibly outgoing, and you are all about relationships. You do not like to be alone, and you need to have company as often as you like. However, here is the thing: you are also all about balance, and you need balance when it comes to using your time to socialize with others and spending time alone.

As much as you don’t like spending time alone, it is essential to do that so you can take time to reflect, recharge, and get to know your company. Solitude is necessary as you will also appreciate the company of those you spend time with more. However, being alone can be appealing. You can watch a movie or read a book by yourself. It is essential to balance alone time and time with others.

Scorpio – Forgetting About Those Who Hurt You

Scorpio, you are intense, and you expect loyalty from others. However, unfortunately, many times, others you trust will betray you, and others will hurt you for no good reason. It is easy to hang onto thoughts about them to the point it can be toxic.

The New Year’s resolution you should do is for the sake of your peace to not give them any more energy into thinking of them. You don’t have to forgive them if they hurt you so badly to the point and never took accountability for it, but you also do not want to keep them in your head rent-free. Have some mental funerals for them, and if you do that, they will be  “dead” to you, and that will create a feeling of indifference. Therefore, you can move forward without giving them a second thought.

Sagittarius – Do Not Take Too Much On At Once

Sagittarius, you are naturally enthusiastic, and you are highly adventurous. You are also the type that can get carried away with executing so many neat ideas, as there may be one where you will want to start a project, another where you will go traveling, and another where you may work with a joint venture to expand your business. Those are all great ideas, and you may have found yourself overwhelmed and burned out previously when attempting to execute so many things at once.

Your New Year’s resolution that you want to keep should be slowing down and taking one thing at a time. Once you begin your project, then give it time before you go traveling. And wait until you are settled back home before working with others to expand your business, for example. Take things one at a time.

Capricorn – Rest!

Capricorn, you are ambitious and industrious, and you are also not the one to want to have fun, as you want to work all the time. However, the one thing you have to do while working so hard is to take some time to rest in between. Nothing is wrong with having fun, but if you don’t want to do that, you need to rest to recharge and wind down because if you don’t, you will burn out, hurting your productivity.

Your mind, body, and spirit cannot handle working all of the time. That means your New Year’s resolution that you will want to keep for good should be to ensure you square away time each day to relax in between working sessions and also make a commitment to stop working each evening at a specific time so you can wind down, relax, and be in a better position to sleep.

Aquarius – Connect With Those In Your Networks

Aquarius, you are social but distant, and you are not the type to become emotionally connected with those who are in your networks. When you think about it, wouldn’t it be nice if you connected with those on a more personal level with those in your social networks instead of having them as a silent connection whom you may exchange a few words with now and then?

Make it your New Year’s resolution to stick to that; you will want to message some of your connections individually and get to know them. If they live close to you, why not arrange to go for a coffee or meal with them? They will appreciate that, and you will feel like you may have created some good friends.

Pisces – Set Boundaries

Pisces, you are highly sensitive and intuitive, and you tend to do more for others than they would do for you. However, when that happens, this leaves you feeling uneasy and even resentful. And you may end up expressing it in ways you don’t like to see happen. What is the solution to that? Set boundaries. You must take care of yourself and not run to others to help them when they ask you to do something for them.

Therefore, the New Year’s resolution you will want to make and commit to is saying “no” to those who ask too much of you and that you cannot or do not want to help. Set boundaries and make it clear that you have them to others so they do not take advantage of you or upset you further. It is a necessary component of self-care.

Making New Year’s resolutions is something that many people no longer like to do. That is because many times, when some say they are making New Year’s resolutions, they will not stick to them within a week of the new year. However, it does not have to be that way. New Year’s resolutions do not necessarily mean you will only lose that holiday weight you put on by joining a gym that you no longer want to attend within a week of joining. If you want to set some goals for the year for any self-improvement, and you know you can stick to them, those are New Year’s resolutions that you can keep all year and beyond. Those should be your focus! Happy 2024.
